Camera-ready comic art drawing for Grin and Bear It
- Description (Brief)
- This pen-and-ink drawing produced for the Grin and Bear It comic panel shows folk-rock singers Toots and Trog listening to the producer's reaction to a film pitch, which he claims diverges from the unoriginal boy-meets-girl story.
- George Maurice "Lichty" Lichtenstein (1905-1983) sold his first cartoon to Judge magazine. In 1929 he started drawing cartoons for the Chicago Daily Times. He launched the daily and Sunday panel cartoon Grin and Bear It in 1932.
- The Sunday comic design for Grin and Bear It (1932- ) was presented using unrelated panels. The strip had few regular characters or continuous stories. Grin and Bear It covers a variety of topics, including political and international adversaries of the day. Creator George Lichty drew the panel until his retirement in 1974.
